I spent most of last night trying to manually config the WIFI to automatically connect to my University's WPA2 Enterprise network using the RP2 w/ the Edimax EW-7811Un. I finally got the wpa_supplicant to behave correctly with all the correct credentials and it turns on automatically on boot, but I'm having some strange issues with RX packet loss. For example when I ping some server like google, the packets take forever to send. Mind you the ping time is very quick around 20ms or so but the time it takes to either send the request or receive the packet back is very long. When I do an ifconfig the only strange thing I see is (on wlan0)
RX packets:198 errors:0 dropped:152 overruns:0 frame:0
The dropped packets are where I think I'm getting the huge latency. (There are no dropped packets on the TX side btw) Now normally you would think this is a network problem but I'm on my laptop on the same network and I'm getting no packet loss at all. Does anyone have an idea of what is going on here? Running iwconfig the quality reports
Link Quality=100/100 Signal Level=70/100 Noise Level=0/100
Could the signal level have anything to do with it? I can't imagine it's causing a 76% packet loss, right?
